VIRGO Publishing, a leading business-to-business information services company, is pleased to announce that ACC Business and AT&T will be co-sponsoring the second Women in the Channel Workshop and Cocktail Reception at the Fall 2011 Channel Partners Conference & Expo in Chicago.
The workshop is the result of a grassroots initiative led by women in the channel and channel management focused on empowering women in technology channel sales. The inaugural event at the Spring 2011 Channel Partners Conference & Expo attracted more than 100 participants. The upcoming fall 2011 event will be held Tuesday, Aug. 23, and will include a cocktail reception followed by breakout roundtable discussions. The meeting concludes with interactive discussion of ways to continue networking and supporting women in the channel throughout 2011.
“The spring event exceeded expectations in terms of attendance and engagement, proving the need for a forum where women in the channel can get together, discuss common concerns, connect with peers and form friendships that will be the foundation for collaboration and success for themselves, their companies and the channel," said Channel Partners Editor-in-Chief Khali Henderson. “Channel Partners applauds AT&T’s and ACC Business’s investment in continuing and growing this worthy effort."
The inaugural Women in the Channel Workshop was held at the 2011 Spring Channel Partners Conference & Expo, March 13-15, 2011, in Las Vegas. The results of this workshop were recently presented in the report, Women in the Channel: A Special Report on Their Status and Empowerment.
